On to Cape Hatteras and Ocracoke
From Oregon Inlet we stopped at Cape Hatteras and saw the famous lighthouse and then took the 45 minute "free" ferry boat to Ocracoke Island. The National Seashore campground was also mostly empty. The beach and weather were great, but we were besieged with the the most aggressive mosquitoes whenever the wind would die down. Later we found out that we had contracted the bites of dozens of sand fleas as well. You always want an offshore breeze on the Outer Banks.
